THE NEW PORT. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 July 1840
THE NEW PORT. The Old Port nuisance, which has so long disgraced the colony and occasioned so much destruction of valuable property, is at length drawing to its term. The works at the New Port are rapidly advancing to completion, and early in the ensuing spring may be made available to the public. It is impossible to under-rate the vast public importance of this magnificent undertaking, or to be otherwise than deeply grateful to the South Australian Company, and to Mr McLaren, their Ma- nager in the colony, for the sagacity that could plan and the liberality and enterprise that could achieve a series of works so bene- ficial and important. That the Governor has watched the progress of the New Port with the greatest anxiety and interest, all those who know his Excellency's devotedness to the right and sound advance- ment of the colony can readily imagine; al- though, had circumstances permitted, we believe his Excellency would have preferred carrying out his original idea of establis...
PORT LINCOLN. (From Wednesday'S Chronicle.) Port Lincoln, June, 22, 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 July 1840
PORT LINCOLN. (From Wednesday'S Chronicle.) Port Lincoln, June, 22, 1840. SCRUB. A LEARNED Theban has said " Tempora mutantur et nos mutamur in illis." Never was the truth of this more clearly illustrated than in the case of Port Lincoln. Within the last six months, I made an excursion from Port Lincoln to the Downs, a distance of forty or fifty miles, travelling along the Tod, by Mount Gawler, and so on to the Downs. At that time, the only habitation (with the exception of a few native wurleys) was Mr Porter's hut—the only living animals, a herd of kangaroos. The compass, "the feeling compass—navigation's soul," was an indispen- sible requisite. No traces of human footsteps were to be seen—no print of the dray was visible to direct the wayfarer whither to bend his steps. The splendid country we passed over, the beautiful scenery we gazed upon, seemed to haye been made in vain; the flowers exhibited their modest beauties to the sun, unobserved by the hand of man. But now, mark the d...
METEOROLOGICAL REGISTER FOR JUNE 1838, 1839 AND 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 July 1840
METEOROLOGICAL REGISTER FOR JUNE 1838, 1839 AND 1840. Kept at Adelaide, by William Wyatt, Esq., J. P. &nbsp; [Explanation of Thermometer Table.— The first line refers to 1838; the second to 1839 ; the third to 1840. The first and last figures of each line give the real observation at 8 a.m., and 9 p.m. The middle figures denote the greatest heat observed during the day.] in common with many other questions, must be regarded as in abeyance. In general, therefore, it may be stated, that you will have no power to con- tract for the sale of lands situate in British North America, or in any of the adjacent islands. " With respect to these colonies, therefore your duties will be limited. Still the information you will possess, and the agency which you will direct will make it the interest both of those intrusted with the sale of land in British North America, and of emigrants about to proceed there, to resort to you for co-operation, assistance and advice. On this topic, however, ...
VARIETIES. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 July 1840
VARIETIES. WOMAN.— Perhaps one of the most, indispen- sible and endcaring qualifications of feminine character is an amiable temper. Cold and callous must be the man who does not treasure the meek and gentle spitit of a confiding woman. Her lips may not be sculptured in the lines of beauty, her eye may not roll in dazzling splendour; but if the native smile be ever ready to welcome, and the &nbsp; glances are fraught with clinging devotion or shrinking sensibility, such must be held as far above 'gold and rubies.' A few moments of en- &nbsp; during silence would often prevent years of discord and unhappiness, but the keen retort and waspish argument too often break the chain of affection link by link, and leave the heart with no tie to hold it but a stern and frigid duty. Aim High.—A high standard—an elevated aim —this is the safeguard of character, and the main- spring of excellence. This makes the skilful &nbsp; mechanic, the enterprising merchant, the usef...

PROGRESS OF THE COLONY-FIRST SIX MONTHS OF 1840. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 4 July 1840
PROGRESS OF THE COLONY—FIRST SIX MONTHS OF 1840. STATISTICAL information connected with South Australia, is naturally enough most anxiously sought after at home, by all those either inter- ested in the province, or desirous of obtaining sufficient information to enable them to become so. As faithful chroniclers of its advancement, we have hitherto contributed, we hope it will be admitted, with some diligence, those evidences of our progress which have come before us in the course of our periodical labours. A half- yearly summary, however, or a concentrated view of our colonial operations during that period, we venture to think may be considered equally interesting and perhaps more satisfac- tory than the scattered notices which are given in our weekly sheet. In this hope we submit the following facts :— In the last general notice of our progress, published in August, 1839, the population of the colony was stated at 8,500. This amount we have since ascertained was almost exactly corr...

The South Australian Register, ADELAIDE: SATURDAY, JUNE 11, 1840. THE LAST GAZETTE. His Excellency the Governor and Resident Commissioner directs it to be notified that the Surveyor-general has the superintendence of all &nbsp; public roads and foot-paths, including bridges, causeways, toll-gates, and other works in direct connection with them, excepting only those which may come under the charge of Municipal Cor- porations.

DISMISSAL OF THE COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS. [Newspaper Article] — South Australian Register — 11 July 1840
DISMISSAL OF THE COLONIZATION COMMISSIONERS. It appears that the Commissioners are ex- ceedingly sore on the subject of, what we sup- pose, may be termed, their somewhat uncere- monious dismissal by Lord John Russell. The following letter addressed to the editor of the South Australian Colonist, by Mr Palmer, one of the defunct Board, exhibits this feeling in a very marked degree :— 11, King's Arms Yard, 30th March, 1840. Sir—As I think you may like to know the nature of the returns moved for by Lord Elliot, on the 14th February, and which were also the &nbsp; subject of his motion in the House of Commons on Friday evening last, I send you the inclosed memorandum. These returns, in justice to my late colleagues and myself, I think should be given, that the public may see what we have done. I find in the year 1838 we sent out 1,665 adults adults, and 939 children; making a total of 2,604 persons at a cost of £30,885, and from the 1st of January, 1839 to 30th May last, the &...
